to-zst(1)                                                            to-zst(1)




NAME

       to-lzma  -  converts  .Z,  .lzo, .zip, .rar, .gz, and .bz2 files to zst
       format


SYNOPSIS

       to-zst    [-(IPv)4]    [-(IPv)6]     [-d(elete_original)]     [-h(elp)]
       [-k(eep_smallest)]  [-m(ax_compress)]  [-n(o_overwrite)] [-p num_cores]
       [-t(imestamp_retain)] file/URL...


DESCRIPTION

       to-zst recompresses files compressed  with  the  compress,  lzop,  zip,
       gzip,  and/or  bzip2  utilities  into zst format.  The newly compressed
       files will usually have a .zst extension.  If a specified file is actu-
       ally a URL, it will be downloaded using wget and then recompressed.


OPTIONS

       -4     Prefer IPv4 when downloading a URL.

       -6     -6 Prefer IPv6 when downloading a URL.

       -d     After each file is compressed, delete the original.

       -h     Print help and quit.

       -k     Once  a  file is successfully recompressed, delete the larger of
              the original file or the new one.  This  option  maximizes  disk
              space savings and is incompatible with the -d option.

       -m     Compress more, but at the expense of increased CPU time and mem-
              ory usage.

       -n     Do not overwrite the target .zst file if it already exists.

       -p num_cores
              Use the multi-threaded -T option  of  zst  to  utilize  multiple
              cores  during  compression.   Note  that  the output file, while
              being fully compatible with unthreaded zst,  will  generally  be
              slightly larger.  Specifying a num_cores value of zero will uti-
              lize all available cores.

       -t     Make the timestamp of new files match those of the old files.
